Beginning on September 25, 2023, and culminating with National Signing Day on October 16, the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) and its Chapters gave utility construction business owners a great reason to join the industry’s premier association: invest in your business’s future success and become part of the association’s National Signing Day signing class. What resulted was fifty-two utility industry companies doing just that, and helping NUCA surpass 2,000 total company memberships for the first time in recent history!
“NUCA has been growing steadily over the past few years, and we’re attracting new members who want to join in the successes we’re helping our industry achieve,” said Doug Carlson, NUCA Chief Executive Officer. “Our Chapters did a great job getting the word out to the industry members in their states and regions, held recruiting events, and signed up new members throughout the National Signing Day signing period.”
New NUCA members that joined during the National Signing Day campaign credited the following NUCA members as being influential in their decision to join NUCA: Austin Merritt, Ben Arthur, Sawyer Barnard, Tim Butler, Lisa Chowansky, Jason Robertson, Tyler Hardin, Tom Butler, Matt Williams, Greg Wolf, and numerous NUCA Chapter Executive Directors.
NUCA Chapters were recognized at three levels for their National Signing Day successes. Chapters that “signed” more than three new members earned top honors with 5-Star Signing Class recognition. Three new members “signed” earned 4-Star recognition and 3-Star recognition went to chapters that “signed” 1-2 new members. In total, 20 NUCA Chapters “signed” at least one new member for National Signing Day!
- 5-Star (5): NUCA Austin, NUCA of the Carolinas, NUCA of the Greater Kansas City Region, NUCA North Texas, Suncoast Utility Contractors Association (SUCA)
- 4-Star (3): NUCA of East Tennessee, NUCA of Southwest Florida, NUCA of Oklahoma
- 3-Star (12): AZUCA Arizona Chapter of NUCA, NUCA of Central Florida, NUCA Gulf Coast, NUCA of Kentucky, NUCA of Metro Washington, DC, NUCA of Middle Tennessee, NUCA of Nebraska, NUCA of New Jersey, NUCA of New York (NUCANY), NUCA of North Florida, NUCA San Antonio, NUCA of South Florida
The event generated industry excitement for the association, promoted the many benefits enjoyed by NUCA members, and expanded the networking opportunities for the industry and its new members. New members were also enticed by the NUCA’s annual 15-for-12 National dues promotion for new members, which kicked off to coincide with the National Signing Day campaign and continued through December 31.
